door painting

What is the best type of paint to use on steel, panel doors.

In some cases I am painting over and old color and in other cases I will be painting clean steel doors.

Inside or out, or both? What color will you be using?

Latex is easiest to use, the higher the sheen, the more washable it becomes. Oils flow and level very nice, look well and are very durable. I like Benjamin Moore's 'Satin Impervo'. If you choose latex, you may need to prime the existing paint if it's oil there now. Exterior...acrylics flex better in the elements and won't fade or blister as much as oils.

I'll watch for your reply first.
